Jeremy Crabtree RecruitingNation
Most observers believed Baylor had to hire somebody with deep Lone Star State recruiting roots, something new Bears' coach Matt Rhule doesn't appear to have, but several veteran Texas high school coaches said that might not be such a bad thing. One coach said "Baylor needed a clean slate and now they have it with every high school coach in the state." Another said it would be smart if Rhule has somebody on his staff with Texas ties, but "Texas high school coaches respect other good coaches. He's a good coach."
